When I was a little kid growing up in the small town of Maxton I wanted to be just like Steve when I grew up, he was my hero. We lived in a small cabin down the road from the Speros family on Buddy Dunn's farm where Steve would ride his motorcycle down to hang out with my parents Buck and Libby Dunn. He could ride a motorcycle like Evil Kenevil, popping wheelies, jumping, and riding fast, times were so simple back then. Steve was this cool guy that seemed to always be having a great time whatever he was doing. When I was in high school I'd spend my summers on the Hurricane as one of the mates of the Fleet and I can honestly say those are some of the best times of my life. Steve was like a big brother in a lot of ways, always looking out for me keeping me on track. I used to love to watch Steve interact with all the people that would come fishing on the boat. He had a personality that was infectious, just a great person that was fun to be around. "Captain Steve" taught me lot about life those couple of summers on the boat and I'm forever grateful for the time I had with him and will cherish the memories I have of him while he was on this Earth.

I worked on the Hurricane with Steve out of Little River when I was 17. He was an awesome boss and so appreciate the many chances he gave me after being late getting to the docks in the am. Marian and I lived in Ocean Isle and we never seemed to catch the bridge when it was open. He was very gracious! Back then my nickname was Mouse
I know God will bring comfort to you all.. prayers for Grace and peace.....

I have known Steve since he was a child. The last communication I remember most was a discussion about his reasons for moving to McDowell County and how he loved his children so much that he wanted to make sure that they grew up where the best in them would have the greatest chance to come out. He loved the ocean but his priorities were in the right place. He has left too soon but I know he is in a more wonderful place now.

What a terrible loss of an awesome man. I will never forget the many ballgames Steve and I watched together. The yelling at the ref's and coaches to the dancing under the backboard (during the game) that Steve would do when Blake would dunk the ball! Steve was honestly one of the most genuine men I have ever known and will be greatly missed by many. Not living close to for the last year or so anymore was a loss already, but I sure will miss the "God bless you and your family little buddy" texts I got from him on a regular basis! Our prayers are with his family, Lisa, Blake, Mckenzie and Madison. You all are in our thoughts. God bless! Robert & Becky Turbyfill and Family
